Week 4: Weather Station
Don’t let summer storms dampen your fun. Instead, assemble your own weather station to understand how meteorologists study and predict the weather. Make a rain gauge to track rainfall amounts, a wind vane to see which way the wind blows, an anemometer to calculate wind speed and barometer to measure air pressure. Then collect and compare data and even make your own weather forecasts.
